Atefeh, TRU Student Photo Session

The beautiful necklace found in every one of these pictures I took of Atifeh is precious to her! It reminds her of her faith and how her faith brought her through some very personal, terrible health challenges! Atifeh is from Iran and is here in Canada, studying business at TRU! She is one of the most hard working, amazing young women I know! Not only is she going to school, but she also works full time in order to pay for her schooling and she does it all cheerfully and with great joy.
I was so happy to be able to take pictures of her on the TRU campus, so that she will always have good memories of her time here in Canada! I hope that she is able to stay and make this her home, but I know her family misses her as she keeps in touch with her parents, brother and twin sister!
Atifeh has been an example of kindness and joy to me, as she expresses gratitude for everything she is given! I’m so glad you were able to come to study in Canada Atifeh, and hope you will always cherish your memories here! You are a light to all that know you..

Hi, I’m Kasandra and I’m so glad you are here! I am a natural, bright and bold photographer based in Kamloops, British Columbia, and I love living in Canada even when it’s snowing! My love of photography started the day my Don brought home a “real” camera for me 15 years ago and I fell in love with the pictures I took that day! My love of family pictures then transitioned to portraits, engagements, weddings and sports (I have had a great time over the years taking pictures of my kids playing soccer, rugby and basketball!) I am never happier than when I have a camera in my hand!
